Imagine sitting on better than 40 years of research about UFOs monitoring and perhaps even penetrating U.S. nuclear missile systems.

CNN live-streams their accounts of what they saw tampering with America's WMD. CNN does no followup reporting. The rest of the indifferent MSM shrugs it off.

Thirteen times you say no, because you’re afraid they’ll screw it up, the way they usually screw up UFO stories, burying it beneath lots of stagey cheese and melodrama. “Or they’ll pair good data with bad or questionable data that’ll wind up getting exposed as a fraud or less than credible,” says veteran sleuth Robert Hastings, who was unable to secure final-cut approval from the cable suitors. “Hollywood doesn’t know how to differentiate, and people are constantly appalled at how silly and slipshod these documentaries are.”

So this time, the author of UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites is doing it himself, more or less. With a major assist from an unnamed benefactor, Hastings has invested $100,000 in a documentary aspiring for a Frontline-like PBS tone.
